Gold Greatest Hits Tour
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
With a new CD ‘GOLD - The Greatest Hits' featuring 42 feel good tracks across 3CDs, and a special vinyl pressing on 180g Gold heavyweight vinyl featuring all of the bands US and UK top 40 chart singles, plus 12” disco mixes being released on the 21st July, Shalamar are embarking on the 2nd leg of their ‘Gold - Greatest Hits 2019’ Tour this Autumn are returning to The New Theatre Peterborough on Saturday 2rd November!
The new album has gone straight into the Top 20 Album chart this week at #17!
Because of the bands international schedule there’s only room for 10 shows on the second leg and the date in Peterborough will be the most Northern show in the UK so it’s expected that besides appealing to the local cassic soul and disco crowd then a lot of people from outside the area will be planning a ‘Saturday night at the theatre’
‘Our first show in Peterborough in May 2017 was on a Tuesday night and our 2nd second in 2018 was on a Sunday. Both were great crowds – now we’ve got the best night of the week for a party’ said lead singer Howard Hewett ‘We’ve looking forward to coming back and performing all our greatest hits from our new Top 20 album to the people of Peterborough and beyond, Its going to be Saturday Night Fever but with real Soul & Disco music anthems!
With the band featuring original members Howard Hewett, Jeffrey Daniel alongside with Carolyn Griffey, daughter of Solar Records Founder Dick Griffey then you can expect to hear all the big hits - There it is, I can make you feel good, 2nd Time Around, Take That to The Bank, Make That move, Dead Giveaway, Right in the Socket and of course A Night To Remember! and more!
Joining the band as their special guest will be fellow 80’s hit maker and dancefloor filler Phil Fearson & Galaxy. Phil enjoyed several Top 20 hits in the period including ‘Dancing Tight’ ‘I can prove it’ ‘ What do I do’ ‘Special Kind of Love’
Plans are also underway for the party to continue afterwards in the Broadway Suite with show promoter Steve Jason looking to host a ‘Gables Aftershow Party’ in the Broadway Suite at the theatre with some of the original DJ’s from the infamous Werrington venue that was the home of the Peterborough Soul crowd during the 1982-1987 era
As Shalamar, Howard Hewett and Jeffrey Daniel sold over 25 million records worldwide and collected no less than 100 gold, silver and platinum awards. They always whip the crowd into a frenzy with classics such as I Can Make You Feel Good, A Night To Remember, Friends, Make That Move, The Second Time Around, There It Is and I Owe You One. Completing the group is Carolyn Griffey (daughter of Shalamar founder Dick Griffey, the CEO of SOLAR records). The line up has been touring since 2001.
